The 7th edition of the exhibition catering to professionals and enthusiasts of precious stones and jewelry is scheduled to commence from Thursday, November 2nd, to Sunday, November 5th, within the premises of Palexpo Hall 6, the same venue as the November 2022 edition. Occupying an expansive 14,000 square meters of exhibition space, this event strategically coincides with the significant autumn auctions and other activities during the Geneva Luxury Week. The event’s organizers are diligently crafting a novel layout, set to be unveiled in due course.
As of now, 145 dealers and a total of 156 exhibitors have been meticulously selected to partake in the forthcoming November edition of the exhibition (Numbers subject to change; further updates expected in September 2023). The organizers are already projecting an exceptionally dynamic event, featuring more exhibitors compared to the November 2022 edition (which comprised 176, encompassing 144 dealers), while maintaining an elevated level of exclusivity compared to the May 2023 event (which accommodated 230 exhibitors and 192 dealers).
Several prominent attributes from past GemGenève events will transition into annual fixtures, notably the Designer Vivarium, which will become a regular highlight during spring editions. A similar approach will be applied to collaborations with educational institutions, including the ongoing partnership with HEAD and the Grand Theatre of Geneva, scheduled next in May 2024. Concurrently, the Donna Jewel project involving students from Galdus School and CREA EYES with Donatella Zappieri will become customary features during autumn editions.

Staying true to its distinct formula, GemGenève continues to serve as a trade fair conceived by exhibitors for exhibitors, extending its accessibility to the general public. The event serves as a distinctive platform dedicated to the realm of exceptional diamonds, precious stones, pearls, as well as antique and contemporary jewelry. It spotlights esteemed designers alongside emerging talents, fostering the involvement of prestigious educational institutions and nurturing the designers of tomorrow.
Beyond its role as a conventional trade exhibition, the event is increasingly prioritizing aspects of culture, youth engagement, training, and knowledge transmission. GemGenève is actively exploring novel avenues and initiatives for display. Under the guidance of Director Mathieu Dekeukelaire, the organizers are particularly committed to enhancing the cultural program’s caliber with each new edition.
The formal press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 1st. Subsequently, the Preview event, attended by local authorities, esteemed guests, and media representatives, will be held on the same day at 2 p.m.
In its second iteration, GemGenève returns to the expansive Hall 6, offering a generous exhibition space of 14,000 square meters. While the venue remains consistent with the November 2022 event, the upcoming GemGenève distinguishes itself with a novel main entrance and an updated stand arrangement. This development is prompted by evolving requirements at the Palexpo center and the organizers’ commitment to enhancing the stand placements with each successive edition. The layout for this edition focuses on creating small coffee station-inspired spaces, well-defined main aisles, thoughtfully curated exhibition zones, and comfortable lounges.
Collaborating with the esteemed Parisian design firm Autre Idée since 2021, the organizers have chosen a fresh ambiance for the autumn edition. This new setting aims to encapsulate a mineral-infused yet intimate atmosphere, subtly infused with a touch of Japanese design elements.
Continuing the tradition of its six previous editions, GemGenève continues to gather an exclusive assembly of international dealers spanning the entire spectrum of the jewelry industry. At the core of this show, meticulously crafted with their preferences in mind, buyers and industry leaders converge to present a remarkable array of elusive pieces awaiting exploration and acquisition. The offerings range from everyday wearable affordable jewelry to antique gems with historical significance, and exceptional pieces that could easily grace museum collections, all the way to contemporary creations embodying the ingenuity of today’s emerging talents.
